And by the sea kept filled (Walbahr almasjor) At-Tur [HQ: 52:6]
WRITTEN BY: DR.Zaghloul Al-Najjar
Allah says in the Holy Qura'n (And by the sea kept filled), according to the Arabic
language "sajar" means to heat and fire up and "almasjor" means what is
conflagrant. But water and fire are opposites; therefore this verse drove many
Interpreters of the Holy Qura'n to consider "the sea kept filled (Walbahr
almasjor)" one of the afterlife incidents depending on the verse in which Allah says:
"And when the seas shall become as blazing Fire or shall overflow" At-Takweer
But Surat At-Takweer talks about afterlife matters, though Surat At-Tur talks
about nowadays matters. So many Interpreters searched for another meaning for
the word "almasjor". They found that "sajar" means also overflow, so they said
that "and by the sea kept filled (Walbahr almasjor)" means the sea filled with water
uncovering the earth, which is the right interpretation because 97.5% of the fresh
water is covering the earth on both Poles and over their mountain heads with layers
of ice whose sickness is about 4 kilometers over the southern pole kilometers and
3800 meters over the northern pole.
If this ice melted, it will raise the standard of water of the seas and oceans by more
than 100 meters and this happened in the old ages, so as a result the water covered
vast areas of the earth on which we live today.
In times of glacial epoch, ice covered vast areas on earth and therefore the seas
subsided from their boundaries. Therefore the interpretation of "and by the sea
kept filled (Walbahr almasjor)" as the over flown sea is the right interpretation.
But after the studies of Man about the Depths of the sea and ocean, he found that
many oceans and a number of seas have big depths as a result of moving away from
the faults of earth and lava and this really causes the depth of these oceans and seas
to be conflagrant with a very high temperature.
This is considered to be one of the strangest phenomenons and it has
